Today is White Rose Day, the day when Prince James, Prince of Wales (James Francis Edward Stuart; "The Old Pretender" or "The Old Chevalier") was born in 1688, thus occasioning the English Whigs to begin to plot against his father, King James II and VII, our last Catholic King, so as to exclude from the throne all Catholic monarchs.

King James III and VIII, de jure King, died on 1 January 1766 and, as the son of the deposed King James II and VII, rightfully claimed the English, Scottish and Irish thrones (as James III of England and Ireland and James VIII of Scotland) from the death of his father in 1701, when he was proclaimed king of England, Scotland and Ireland by his cousin Louis XIV of France. Following his death in 1766 he was succeeded by his son Prince Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") in the Jacobite Succession.

The White Rose or White Cockade is the symbol of Catholic monarchy all over Europe.

The motto of the family was (in Old French) Aymez Loyaute - "Love Loyalty"- a fitting motto if ever there was one!

God save the House of Stuart!

King James III of England and Ireland and VIII of Scotland - the legitimate Catholic King when he was a young prince.

Hey Tribunus,

I was looking for pictures of the Sisters of Compiegne and while browsing happened upon your site. I was wondering how to get in contact with you since it seems that we have a bunch of the same ideals including a love of Nobility and the Catholic Faith. I was wondering if there was a convenient way to contact you. My name is Jozef Schutzman, 23, I live in Syracuse, NY at the moment but originally from Texas. If you are interested in contact me please do so by emailing me at or if you are on facebook just look my name up, I am the only one on facebook with such a name just leave me a note reminding me either way how I found you. God bless! I would rather God Save the Queen than this bastard American that rules over us, literally.

In Jesu et Maria,
Jozef A. Schutzman

The Revolution of 1688 caused deep and wide discontent among Catholics, High Churchmen (who subsequently produced first Methodism and then Anglo-Catholicism), Baptists, Congregationalists, Quakers and others.

Even after 1807, there remained in such circles a profound sense that the state created in 1688, that state’s empire, and that empire’s capitalist ideology were basically, profoundly and fundamentally less than fully legitimate.

That tradition long outlived the death of the Stuart cause as such with that of Cardinal York in 1807. At its heart has always been, and remains, belief in the closest possible economic, social, cultural and political ties among the historic Kingdom of England (including the Principality of Wales), the historic Kingdom of Scotland and the historic Kingdom of Ireland.

It went on to produce, among much else, the (Tory-led) campaign against the slave trade, the demands for (largely Tory-delivered) extensions of the franchise and other political reforms, the Labour Movement’s amelioration of economic and social injustices precisely in order to prevent a Marxist revolution, and the opposition to the Boer and First World Wars.

And it included the New England and other Congregationalists, Maryland and other Catholics, and Pennsylvanian and other Quakers who contributed significantly to the intellectual environment that eventually became the American Republic, where the Episcopal Church derives its name, episcopal succession and several other features from the staunchly Jacobite Episcopal Church in Scotland.

Furthermore, Jacobite émigrés founded the Russian Navy of Peter the Great, maintained a network of merchants in the ports circling the Continent, had banking dynasties with branches in several great European cities, introduced much new science and technology to their host-countries, dominated the Swedish East India and Madagascar Companies, and they did very much more besides.

Not least, they opposed slavery in the American Colonies, and abolitionist opponents of secession in the South were later called “Tories”.

Thanks Josef. Was I right to publish your post?

Dear David,

I agree with all of that until you get to America.

The Congregationalists were the prime movers in legalising slavery (in 1625 in Massachusetts)

The expression "Tory" in America meant a supporter of King George III. You will be hard-pressed to find many who were abolitionist, anti-secessionist Southern supporters of American republicanism.
